Draw a Dot. is starting off 2014 with a brand new illustration contest, and here is the information!
This month, Draw A Dot. is working with AmongMen, one of the leading men’s online magazines in Canada, on a cool contest. We have picked one of the S/S 2014 menswear trends as the topic of this contest and illustrator is required to use his/her imagination to create an illustration based on it (abstract, surreal, editorial style are all welcome, but please try to stay away from copying the exact runway/look book photos). Once the submission period is over, Christopher Turner, the editor-in-chief of AmongMen, and I will look at all the entries and announce the winner on February 13, 2014. The winner will not only win a cash prize and a feature on à la mode, but he/she will also be working on an editorial for AmongMen that will be released at the end of March or in early April.
One of the major elements in the S/S 2014 menswear trend is the topical floral print. Your task is to create a submission based on this topic. Some of the brands that are part of this trend are Prada, Gucci, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Tom Ford and Dries Van Noten (not limited to just these options).
